This is a source of contention with SEPTA, although the older age of SEPTA (it predates Amtrak) means that it has lock-ins at lower rates.

I believe there just using 2 and 3 car trains...not anything too big. Hopefully Amtrak takes not of that... I know the SLE uses 25kv instead MNRR 12.5kv...so things might be abit different. I think I posted in detail the plans for the SLE on the Connecticut thread.

Half their system was also Reading Railroading and not PRR... Only 3 lines use the Amtrak network , the rest are separate... I think once Amtrak upgrades its Electrical infrastructure it will lower the rates across the board...

LIRR to get improvements in Brooklyn, part of Barclays deal


By ALFONSO A. CASTILLO March 22, 2015

The $100 million real estate deal that led to the Barclays Center being built over a century-old rail yard is beginning to pay dividends for the Long Island Rail Road and its Brooklyn commuters, officials said.

Seven years into the construction of a state-of-the-art new storage facility to replace the original Vanderbilt Yards, workers will soon punch through a 171-year-old rail tunnel to provide trains, for the first time, a direct path between the yard and Atlantic Terminal.

Port Washington Branch at Little Neck


062
by Nexis4Jersey09, on Flickr

Quote:
Opened : July 1870 (F&NS)
Daily Passengers : 2,886
Electrified : 750V DC 3rd Rail
County : Queens

Little Neck Parkway at the west end of the station crosses the line at the only at-grade railroad crossing on the Port Washington Branch, and one of the few remaining in New York City. It is also the only "quiet" grade crossing in the LIRR system. Trains do not need to blow their horns here, because trains are coming to a complete stop here, and Little Neck Parkway is not a high-traffic road. It is regarded as the most dangerous crossing in the city.
